Crazy, I Cannot Be

Sirens scream loudly

In a day so cloudy

I can barely see

Deafened by my own inner thoughts

Overwhelmed by everything

Surrounded by nothing

I want to lay

But instead I splash through a never-ending current

Crazy, I cannot be

For even when I am lost

Through darkness I can still see

This cannot be the way life should move

Is everything gained

When memories fade, and the past is no longer a journal’s last page

I ache from a numbness that feels so strong

I ache from things I just cannot say

Am I young

For, does it not feel so strange getting old?

It does
